Sorry I haven't write in a while, I was just super busy with different projects, but I will try to let you know what I did in all this time.
Last year in September I moved to Zurich for about 3 months. All my friends asked me how it was and if it was difficult to adjust. The thing that, I think it was pretty amazing, was the fact that since the beginning I felt very good, I loved the city, the food was amazing. The best food I had in Europe, after Italy, I could say, and also I haven't felt like I needed time to adjust. Not even for a second. And here it is why. The city is very beautiful, you have this river crossing the city and also a lake right in the middle so it is just a wonderful place to live. The other great thing is the traffic. There is no traffic in that city and this was one of the things that I loved about Zurich. They have such a good public transportation that to have a car it is really a pain in the ... You literally could be in any place of the city in less then 30 minutes. There is no other city in Europe that you can compare this luxury with. Maybe this is one of the reasons I felt so good there and I didn't need to adjust because it was just perfect. I have to admit I am not sure if I could live in a big city, like London for example. I love that city but it's just to much traffic and I don't want to waist my life like that.
I remember 2 year ago when we did a longer vacation to visit different cities and states and we had 8 fights in total and it was something like this: Cluj Napoca - London - Reykjavik - Miami - Mexico City - Cabo San Lucas - Los Angeles - London - Cluj Napoca. And the worst of the worst was in London. From the airport where we landed to arrive to the address where we stayed we took a bus, then a train, then the metro, and then we had to walk for another 15 minutes and in total it took more then to arrive from Romania to UK. This is just crazy.
But anyway, to stick to the subject, the downside of living in Zurich: it is super expensive, the people there smoke a lot and being a nonsmoker makes creating new friendships harder.
I will let you know more about places where to eat or shop in the next blog post.
The Christmas spirit is already here, the city is already dressed for the winter holidays so I thought it's time to do the same.
I have started to do my Christmas shopping a few weeks ago so stay tuned for the following weeks because new posts will follow. For the Christmas night I wanted a beautiful dress that will keep me warm but that will still be stylish and chic, so I found it on the Revolve website.
I started to be in love with their products a while ago, they have so many amazing brands and unique pieces so you will definitely find something great on they website.
I paired my beautiful sweater dress with my white boots and my Jimmy Choo bag and when it will get colder I will put my faux fur for an amazing and comfy look.
It's Monday again so it's time to get back to work. Hope you have enjoyed your weekend as much as you could, I know I did :)
Here is an outfit that I wore this weekend and that I am crazy about and I want to share it with you.
I did some shopping lately and this is how I got my hands on this beautiful asymmetric black dress and this cute belted faux fur. Even thought for this season I have decided to dress more in bright colors and leave the dark colors behind I couldn't not buy this one. Also, I got it on sale so it was really a bargain. I match it with a gorgeous belt, my white boots that I got last year from Zalando and that I absolutely adore and with my new long pink faux fur. This faux fur is perfect for this cold weather and makes you forget about this chilly days because it keeps you warm and comfy.
It will also be the perfect look for the office and also looks so good with the autumn colors :) Don't you think? Long asymmetrical black dress with a t-shirt or shirt underneath, add a belt for a more stylish look and with your fluffy faux fur you will be the star at the office. All eyes on you!

It's Saturday night and I am looking through some pictures from my vacation in LA from last year. I miss that place like crazy and I cannot wait to go back. Haven't been able to go this year feels to me like a year lost. Well...maybe I exaggerate...but just a tinny bit. If you have never been you should put it on your bucket list and this is not because you have so many things to visit, let's say like in Rome, because you don't, but it's that feeling...that feeling that I cannot explain. You have to be there to understand it.
I am that kind of person that wants to see the entire world with all it's beautiful places. I think that you should go in one place ones and then make plans for another spot. But something is different about LA. Something that makes me wanna go back over and over again.
Maybe is the air or maybe the people. I don't know, but all I know is that next year I will go again no matter what.
Have you ever been to Los Angeles? How was you experience? I am looking forward to reading your comments.
I wish you a weekend feeled with love and happines,
Which one of you guys has always dreamed to become a model, but because of the height or the weight or whatever didn't get the change, or worst didn't even try? Well, I have amazing news for you. Now you can. Now is the time. Now you can register for the TV Show called The Fashion Hero and come with me to beautiful Cancun to film Season 2 of this amazing show that is planning to change the face of fashion.
But first, let's talk about dreams. We all have dreams and most of the times we give up on our dreams because we are afraid about what people will think or we are afraid that we are not good enough. In this way, we live our life with regrets, thinking about how our life would have been, if we would have had the courage to follow our dreams.
Since I always loved to pose, my dream during collage was to become a model. Even if I am 160 cm ( 5 foot 3 ) I wanted this so bad that I would go to different castings but I was rejected every time and it made me feel so bad. I never told anyone about this because I was so embarrassed. The only person that knew was my mom. But even so, I wasn't going to give up, so I had to figure out some other job that implies taking pictures and sharing my style, so being an influencer and inspiring people around me made sense.
Is this the story of your life? Because it sure was mine, until 1 year ago when I had the courage to quit my 9 to 5 job, take out my safety blanket and jump into the unknown.
People around me were always inspired about the way I dress, girls would ask me for fashion advice or how to pose etc. But the blogging idea actually started after my first trip to Miami. Miami was an inspiration to me. That place was filled with happy, healthy and beautiful people. That place made me realize that real happiness comes from doing the thing that you love the most and being surrounded by people that you love.
This is why I am so happy and proud to be part of the Season 2 of The Fashion Hero, a TV show that is changing the face of fashion and empowers real people.
Did this ever happen to you? Have you always dreamed of becoming a Model? Now is your chance. Register now on www.thefashionhero.com and you can be paired with me for the Season 2 of The Fashion Hero. Let's change the rules of this game, let's all have equal chances of becoming a Model even if we are not 90-60-90.
Paris Fashion Week just ended, closing the doors to the most fabulous fashion events for this year. But one of the shows that stroked the most was the SS19 Chanel collection.
Karl Lagerfeld splashed into a new season with a collection of fine knit suiting, monochrome swimsuits and sweater dresses. The show was an amazing experience in which guests attending the spectacle at the Grand Palais were transported to the seaside.
After this show we can conclude that there is not a single woman out there who will not crave after a Chanel suit, but we know that this means months of savings. And now you are thinking "why is she pushing the knife in the wound" and states the obvious? And this is because, even I know that it is hard to believe, I have found the next Karl Lagerfeld. His name is Daniel Andresi and he is a Romanian designer.
The first time I have seen some of his creations, my first thought was: " These are so Chanel inspired."
Every one of his suits are exquisite like a work of art. He uses some unique materials that look stunning on you and make you feel feminine and powerful, like the world is your oyster. And I am not just saying this, I have tried 3 of his suits myself and no words are needed. I will let the pictures and my YouTube video speak by themselves.
Let's not forget about the best part. This suits are super affordable and also he offered me a discount code for you guys to use and with it you get 10% discount on any product for woman or men. Just
I just got back from Feeric Fashion Week and I still have lots of things to share with you about this but first I want to talk about presents. I know how hard it is to find the perfect gift for your mother, a special friend or why not yourself, because I think we all been there. Three weeks ago was my mother’s birthday so as usual I wanted to give her something special. Looking for a great present I have realized that the best present for her 52 anniversary would be to buy her a beautiful classic watch. So it came only natural to buy her a beautiful Daniel Wellington watch since I am in love with their lovely pieces and I already own one myself. Actually now I own two because I couldn’t just buy one for her I had to take the same one for me also :) I couldn’t resist.
I choose the Classic Petite Melrose because this one is a classic and timeless piece and also because it is a piece that it’s beautiful and looks good on any age. I also love it because it is that kind of watch that looks amazing with a sportish look wearing a hoodie but it also looks like million bucks with an evening dress at a party.
And…I have saved the best for last. I have a discount code for you that you can use on any purchase on Daniel Wellington. Isn’t that great? You can get 15% discount using my codeRUXANDRA at www.danielwellington.com + Free shipping!!!
I am waiting for you comment to tell me if you have found the perfect gift and also which watch have you choose?
I am super excited because yesterday I have arrived to Sibiu for the third day of Feeric Fashion Week. I couldn't,t wait to see the collections and share everything with you guys. In the first part of the day I have seen the collections of Pedro Juan Glez a talented designer from Madrid, Spain. The collection was elegant and feminine, it had also some very sexy pieces and the piece that I loved the most were some cool gold pants with a transparent top. The second show was from the designer Waleska Morin and I have seen a lot of transparency, colors and sequin pieces which made this collection a must see. Then the next show was the Savoarfer brand. Their pieces look like they were make for an underground festival or why not for Electric Castle which I will miss this year since I am at the Fashion Week. The Pimpi Smith handmade handbags show made me feel like I was in Italy...and who doesn't love Italy?! It gave me goosebumps.
After this I had an amazing lunch with the FPM magazine. We tasted the Liliac wine, we ate some amazing food at La Cuptor and I spend some great time with the girls from the magazine and the other bloggers.
For the first part of the day I wore an amazing light blue suit that had sequins on the sleeves from the beautiful designer Isabela Teodor.
